Miriam Polli is a native New Yorker who now lives between Key West, Virginia, and a small island in Greece. Her short stories and poetry have been published in various literary and commercial magazines. In A Vertigo of Silence is her first published novel.Early reviews have arrived: --Connie May Fowler, author of Before Women Had Wings and The Problem With Murmur Lee says--In A vertigo of Silence is a mesmerizing, multi-generational novel that tracks the lives of a remarkable family of women. Miriam Polli has written a book that will linger with readers long after the final page has been turned. In A Vertigo of Silence is a tour de force.--Mary Morris, author of the forthcoming Jazz Palace says: In this compelling, powerfully written novel Miriam Polli explores the love that binds us and the secrets that chain us. As the tautly written scenes move back and forth in time and between characters, their stories unfold, as fractured and complex as our lives.--Porter Shreve, author of The End of The Book and The Obituary Writer says: In a Vertigo of Silence is an evocative novel that manages to pack a saga into less than three hundred pages. It blends the everyday conflicts between parents and children, husbands and wives, with the devastating effects of alcoholism, adultery, abuse and various forms of loss. Miriam Polli writes beautifully but it's her understanding of her characters--their impulses, the forces that drive their actions and inaction--that make this a powerful, memorable book.
